Well, the great sickness of 2012 adventure continues into 2013. I went to a MinuteClinic yesterday and discovered that my fever had returned (and got worse as the day went on). After a negative strep test they advised me to get to urgent care for a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia. I didn’t make it into urgent care yesterday — the wait times for all of the urgent care locations that were open yesterday were over 2 hours. I’ve missed so much work so I wanted to just get caught up on work and rest. But today you can bet that I got my butt into urgent care. Three and a half hours and a chest x-ray later I returned home with Tamiflu, cough syrup (the good kind) and an inhaler. So I’m hoping I’m finally on my way to kicking this thing. Official diagnosis (I’m skeptical): another bout of influenza and bronchitis.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a protein powder that they absolutely adore? I read a lot about Vega, Sunwarrior and fitmixer on various blogs but usually end up finding something I don’t like about the product before I actually order anything.
Finally, I wasn’t going to do a 2013 “resolutions” post, but I do actually have some wellness goals fo 2013, so here they are:
- Get healthy and kick this flu crap that’s been weighing me down the past two weeks!
- Get certified in personal training.
- Get in at least one strength training and one yoga session in each week. Even if it’s at home.
- Run my 2nd Ragnar Relay (IN PROGRESS: have ten runners recruited for our team)
- Run a sub-24:00 5K
- Run a sub-2:00 half marathon
- Drink more water.
- Save more money.
- Run 13 races throughout the entire year (IN PROGRESS: signed up for four 2013 races already and committed to #13in2013)
- Do a juice cleanse (IN PROGRESS: scheduled to start one on 1/6 !!)
- Run a race in one other state besides Minnesota and Wisconsin
- Focus on tightening up my “trouble areas.” I’m pretty happy with my weight right now (although I’m a few pounds away from my absolute ideal) so now I feel like I can focus on toning and tightening 🙂
- Figure out what kind of eating habits make the most sense for me to be my healthiest and stick to it.
